Unboxing Sunny Health & Fitness Folding Treadmill
Sunny health and fitness folding treadmill was not much heavy (103 lbs) and most of it came pre-assembled. With the help of the detailed assembling instructions, within an hour the whole tread setup was ready. It’s advisable to have a helping hand while assembling, instead of doing it alone.
Overall Build & Quality
Sunny Health & Fitness folding treadmill is not a very advanced treadmill. If you are looking for a complete starter package without swelling your pocket, this is your tread.
With a steel frame and anti-corrosive paint on it, Sunny Health & Fitness has provided a durable tread. To safeguard the joints, motor and some other parts, lots of hard plastic is also used in this tread. It’s quite a steady tread with acceptable running dimensions. And yes, you can save some space by folding it. However, do note that it is not for overweighed fellows.
Specifications of Sunny Health & Fitness Folding Treadmill
Let’s crawl through the various specifications of this tread.
Sunny Health & Fitness folding treadmill is 62”(L) x 25.5”(W) x 50” (H) when unfolded. After folding its dimensions are 36”(L) x 25.5”(W) x 58”(H). So you need 62 x 25.5 = 1581 sq in. of area when you work out with this tread.
This tread comes with a soft-drop hydraulic folding system. A hydraulic folding system in this price segment is quite impressive. And, we saw the deck lifted almost upto the dashboard, when folded.
Yes, it did save lots of space for us.
On-Board Weight Capacity
As mentioned, this tread is not for you if you are overweight. In fact, if you come in the near periphery of 200 lbs, you must avoid it and seek another tread. This tread can accommodate only upto 220 lbs. We saw this as a huge setback because if you are overweight, this tread may not be your best pick. We are having a great time with this tread.
If you find yourself in the taller category, you may find the running area smaller than your stride. This tread provides 48.82” (L) X 15.75 (W) in. of running area. Still, if you are not overweight and can manage your strides within the deck, this tread may be quite a good deal for you.
This Sunny Health & Fitness treadmill comes with a not-so-powerful motor. This tread comes with a 2.20 HP motor, but in this price range, it is quite a good motor. We monitored that the motor never gets heated up during our cardio and worked like a charm. If you are planning for just walking or jogging, this tread is a good fit. We say it once again, this tread is not for power runnings or interval trainings.
Speed & Inclination
Starting from 0.5 mph this treadmill can reach upto 9 mph. This was a good speed our cardio starting from 0.5 and then incrementing it 0.1 mph. There are two ways you can control the speed. One is from the console and another is from the handgrip. Yes, this tread has a speed control feature on the handgrip as well, so that you don’t have to remove your hands from the grip, just to change the speed.
Seems quite thoughtful….
An inclination feature of a treadmill always boosts its ranking. Yes, this tread does have the inclination feature. It’s a manual inclination instead of an automatic one. There are three levels of inclination 0%, 2% and 4.37%.
Features of Sunny Health & Fitness Folding Treadmill
At this rate, don’t expect too much. Still, this tread got most of the tick marks for the basic tread features, from us. Let’s find out its features.
You can get all your stats as well as the tread status and speed on the 7” LCD screen provided with this tread. On the screen you can see time, distance covered, speed, calories burnt and pulse.
This tread comes with cushioning. But don’t expect a very good one. While our cardio we felt that cushions did absorb some impacts on the knees and ankles.
Heart rate Monitor
It’s a good habit to monitor your heart rate at regular intervals. And we follow this rule almost religiously. It’s like your body is talking to you. With this tread, all you have to do is grab the handrails and the sensors will do their job. Your heart rate will be displayed on the monitor.
If you like to have your health drinks during the workout then this tread has provided a cup holder for you. Also, you can place your tablet or mobile on the device holder. This device holder does hide the LCD screen though.
Sunny Health & Fitness has provided 9 training programs with this tread. These training programs can be a good starter. Each program profile is printed on the console. Make your selection and go ahead. At this price range, it’s rare to find training programs. We tried each one of the training programs and found it as an add-on for this tread.BUY ON AMAZON
